Live Nativity Walkthrough 2014

_DSC0004

You will be magically taken back 2014 years at Memorial on Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14 between 6 and 8 pm as Memorial United Methodist presents its sixth annual Christmas Card to the Community featuring six inspiring scenes narrated by Newell Knudson, live performers and music.

The 20-minute walk with a shepherd guide takes the path back to Bethlehem to celebrate the true meaning of Christ’s birth.  Bring your kids and grandkids to share in this homegrown celebration of Christmas and join in singing Christmas carols and warm up with hot beverages and snacks.

It’s all free and runs two nights Saturday, Dec. 13th, and Sunday, Dec 14th, from 6-8 pm – rain or shine.  Parking is in the lot entered from Scott Avenue.  As you approach from the west parking lot (off of Scott Ave.), the Centurion will greet you to get you started on a wonderful journey through time

StopHungerNowPhilippinesWe packed 121,000+ meals on October 20th just in time to be sent to the Philippines, probably through Divine guidance.  Below is a confirming letter from Christopher Romero of Stop Hunger Now:

“Subject: Your Meals Have Shipped to the Philippines!

Friends of Stop Hunger Now,

We are delighted to announce that the meals from your respective meal packaging events have been shipped in a container totaling 285,120 meals from our San Leandro, California warehouse.

Convoy of Hope, a 501(c)3 faith-based nonprofit, has served more than 55 million people throughout the world through international children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing. Through the cooperation of their local partners, Convoy of Hope is able to feed nearly forty-five thousand children a week in the Philippines and five thousand children every day. 

UPDATE: We have fully paid Stop Hunger Now for the 120,000 meals. Thank you for your donations!.  You may still donate to Stop Hunger now for their on-going efforts to relieve hunger around the world.  Mail checks to Memorial UMC, 1726 Pollasky, Clovis, CA 93612 or Donate NOW via credit card.

To read entire letter, open this post.

Watch the Packing of 121,422 Meals!

October 20, 2013

This was a huge community event organized by Memorial and Stop Hunger Now.  121,422 meals were packed.  Each meal bag serves 6 meals and costs us 25 cents per meal – $30,000. We had no idea, at the time,  that our packaged meals would be desperately needed in the Philippines. Donations are still being accepted. ALL donations will go to the food purchase. Memorial keeps none of it.

Click here to open YouTube for the video.

Play time: 10:58

Update, January 2014:  Thank you! Your donations have paid for the food purchase in full!
